When the Unthinkable Happens: A Journey of Hope and Healing

Free CEU Workshop – Anniversary Reactions, Traumatic Grief

A Professional Training facilitated by: Deb Del Vecchio-Scully LPC, NCC, DCMHS

When a school shooting occurs, the entire community and beyond are impacted. Communal Trauma places a complex, demanding burden on community therapists requiring specialized education, consultation and support. This workshop will focus on the specific nuances of Communal Trauma and sequelae of anniversary reactions, traumatic grief and loss.

Attendees will learn about the complexities of Communal Trauma, the trajectory of healing and the intense and varied reactions evoked preceding anniversaries.
